. . . oh, could she sing ¿ impeccably, dazzlingly, thrillingly. She was a coloratura and musician with every follicle of her strawberry-blond hair.

. . . soyons une fois encore séduits par l'abattage, le brio, la verve d'une interprète qui brûlait les planches . . .

Es éste un feliz descubrimiento que muestra a una Sills brillantísima en lo vocal interpretando piezas de Caldara, Haendel o Adam con una técnica deslumbrante y gran musicalidad.
